We have a 4200 and a very proficient student of mine tried to use it (per Thermo protocol re. Bioanalyzer) to quantify RNAseq libraries, but this didn't prove very reliable; she'd get a very unbalanced number of reads when she mixed libraries in a chip. Quantifying the same samples via qPCR gave much more reliable results. I don't blame the 4200 per se, though; perhaps the issue was uneven fragment lengths by our part. Anyways, qPCR proved to be less affected by experimental variation and that's what we use now.
